grc_jan2020.jpg

Glossop Record Club is back on Thursday 9th January for the first of our new ‘Classic Album‘ sessions, playing Fleetwood Mac’s Rumours on vinyl and in full.

Released in 1977, it went on to become one of the biggest-selling albums of all time and has been an almost permanent fixture of ‘best albums’ lists ever since. We’ll briefly explore the band’s origins in the British blues boom of the late 1960s, their ever-changing lineup and the making of the album, before we play it in full.

Doors open at 8pm and the music kicks off at 8.30pm.

And here’s a heads-up about February’s session, when you’ll get the chance to play one record, and one record only – the song that was number 1 in the UK singles chart on the day you were born!

Find out what it was here officialcharts.com/archive/ and if you were born before November 1952, we’ll use this chart instead popmusichistory.co.uk/sheet-music.

It doesn’t matter if it’s from the original single, a reissue, on an LP or compilation, so long as it’s on vinyl.

If you need any help tracking down a copy of the song to play, get in touch and we’ll see what we can do.

It’ll be a lot of fun, so we hope you can join us.

NOVEMBER’S RECORD CLUB: A History of Strawberry Recording Studios… in 10 Records – with Dr Peter Wadsworth

grc_strrawberry_nov2019

On Thursday 14th November, we’ll be exploring the amazing legacy of Strawberry Recording Studios, the Stockport-based studio founded by the future members of 10cc in 1967 and which played host to musicians of all kinds – from Neil Sedaka, Bay City Rollers and Paul McCartney to Buzzcocks, Joy Divison, The Ramones and St Winifred’s School Choir! Not forgetting 10cc themselves.

To take us through that story, we’ll be welcoming Strawberry Studios historian Dr Peter Wadsworth to Glossop Record Club for ‘A History of Strawberry Recording Studios… In 10 Records‘.

Peter was the driving force behind the excellent Strawberry exhibition at Stockport Museum in 2017, and with his PhD in the legendary studio, there is no better person to take us through its illustrious past, from its humble beginnings above a record shop to producing international hits by a staggering variety of artists, to its closure in the early 1990s.

Doors open at 8pm and the talk will begin at 8.30pm. See you there!

September’s Record Club: DOVES – Lost Souls

grcdovessept2019.jpg

Glossop Record Club returns on Thursday 12th September to play one of the finest albums by a Manchester band on vinyl and in full.

dovelostsoulsvinyl.jpg

Lost Souls, the debut album by Doves, was released in 2000, after a decade that saw them put out a handful of dancefloor classics under the name Sub Sub, slowly morphing into Doves in the late 90s amidst a fire that destroyed their studio and the loss of their mentor, Rob Gretton.

Alongside the album, we’ll also be playing a few tracks from their time as Sub Sub, plus collaborations with Bernard Sumner, Jane Weaver and Badly Drawn Boy.

Doors open at 8pm and the music starts at 8.30pm. See you there.

April’s Record Club: TALK TALK’S SPIRIT OF EDEN

GRC TalkTalk.jpg

We’re back on Thursday 11th April with Gavin Hogg at the helm to play what is considered to be one of the greatest albums of the 1980s on vinyl and in full – Talk Talk’s ‘Spirit Of Eden’ – along with a selection of cuts from their other albums. It’s a record we’ve wanted to play for quite some time, and following the recent death of the band’s vocalist and songwriter, Mark Hollis, we thought this would make a fitting tribute to a very distinctive and singular voice.

A year in the making, the album was released in 1988 to a rather muted response, but over time it’s reputation has grown and it’s now considered a classic, hugely influential on many bands and artists including Doves, Elbow and Wild Beasts among others.

Writing for The Guardian following Mark Hollis’s death, Jude Rogers described the album as a “long, meditative, immersive experience – extended journeys into the possibilities of ambient sound, influenced not by what surrounded their makers, but by the spaces between; of the improvised nature of jazz and modern classical composition, as well as strange, oblique poetry.” Read the full piece here. Also worth reading is this piece on The Quietus.

Doors open at 8pm, music starts 8.30pm. We hope to see you there.
